Categories: Scientific, Microscopy


A good example of a miniature Charles Gould-type box-mounted microscope measuring 16,5 cm tall and the case 9,5×7,5 cm.

The microscope is well preserved with three original objectives (one lost its lens), its original substage mirror, its stage tweezer, a stage livebox in two parts, two pikes, one tongs and one slide.

The microscope is unsigned but certainly English from the 1820s’ when Charles Gould introduced this type of microscope.

The microscope is in genuine condition without any restoration or replacements.

A fine example of the little rare and famous miniature box-mounted Gould-type.
